Arguments for flat taxes apply more strongly to other forms of taxes. Read this, flat-taxers.
Anonymous asked: Hey, the FBI caught a terrorist here in America last week! I can't wait to hear about it all over the news for... what's that? He's a white Christian guy who was going to massacre Muslims? Nevermind, nobody's gonna cover that when there's still some airplane missing
Jesus Christ our media are fucking racist clowns.
Anonymous asked: Charlene Dill, a 32-year-old mother of three, working three jobs, just died because she couldn't get access to healthcare. Expanded Medicaid, which would have saved her, was blocked by the Republican administration of Florida. Hey, remember when the GOP was opposed to "Death Panels"? Well, what the fuck would you call this, then?
Republicans are garbage, their opposition to universal healthcare is sick and disgusting, and by voting for these people, you are complicit in the same.
Anonymous asked: Woohoo another white man on Network TV Late Night! Whoohoo!! Yeah!!!! We're not racist! We're not racist! - White Dudes right now
At long last, white men will finally have a voice in our media.
Suggestion that the Colbert Report vacancy (there’ll be a vacancy, right?) go to either Jessica Williams or W Kamau Bell or hell why not both why don’t they co-host a show COMEDY CENTRAL YOU NEED TO GET ON THIS
This is so right. There is actually one less white guy on late night next year. The real play comes in the slot after TDS and I think getting Bell back on with Williams aboard Totally Biased would be stellar if not a new show fronting with a woman of color.
It’s been a long time since Wanda Sykes’ show’s been off TV.
Anonymous asked: I don't think you understand libertarianism. Libertarians by definition cannot be racist because racism is putting individuals in collective groups whereas libertarians can only view people as individuals. A racist libertarian is an oxymoron.
Hahaha “libertarians can only view people as individuals” hahahahaha, oh, go fuck yourself. You seriously think you can hide behind that bullshit? Guess what, you fuckface, your bankrupt and hilarious philosophy might call for all kinds of bullshit, but NO ONE IS FOOLED by the fact that all your ideas about economics and government just so happen to benefit one group of people more than others.
Look, if you love freedom and no government so much, there are any number of failed states you can move to to have your libertarian paradise. You know why you don’t do that? Because your bullshit theories only work for you when you’re already in a place that inherently favors your group over others. If you aren’t already in first place, with centuries of social and cultural mechanisms in place to keep you there, not so appealing huh.
So, nice try, but not only is “racist libertarian” not an oxymoron, it’s redundant. Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit, you fucking shithead.
Andrew Ti is winning right here.
It chaps my hide that Supreme Court justices, people who almost certainly have read more philosophy than I, and studied political science more than I have, could ignore Rawls here in light of the status quo.
Wealth and income inequality are at or nearly all time highs, and political inequality has been getting routinely deconstructed for the last 30 years. But even in light of this, the conservative half of SCOTUS thinks, ‘fuck it, let’s make it worse!’ (Perhaps because they have theirs, and don’t have to live in the environment they are constructing.)
These guys, and they are, obviously fail at the Veil of Ignorance
By one analysis, 5.2 million Americans who could have gotten Medicaid if their states had accepted the expansion will remain uninsured. And if you asked those people in a poll whether Obamacare had helped them, they’d quite reasonably say no.
So Republicans in those states can laugh all the way to election night. They got to screw the poor, which, let’s be honest, they were inclined to do anyway, and in doing so they also did political damage to the Obama administration. Quite a trick."
— Republicans work like dogs to undermine the law and make sure it helps as few people as possible, then hold up their success at denying the law’s benefits to their own citizens as evidence that the law was misconceived in the first place. (via wilwheaton)
Anonymous asked: Almost every time I write a black name, like mine, Montel, in Microsoft Word it says it's misspelled/not a name. But white people names never get a red squiggle line under them. Is that racist?
Yo, it really is some dehumanizing bullshit.
Can we just appreciate how the visual effects in Cosmos ASTO ramped up right before he was about to re-quote the famous "we are made of star stuff" quote? I got goosebumps all over my body and I’m sure others did too because they made it really obvious to any Cosmos fan what phrase was about to come up. I was sitting there like, yes, YES, SAY THAT SAY IT, YOU FUCKING SAY IT NEIL.. and he said it, and it was perfect.
True story. I got a little tear too.
